The picture says 1,000 words (…plus text that says “Buggin Out 09”). Cudi, Cons, Plain Pat & Rik Cordero talk about how the song came together on set for the “Buggin Out 2009” video, and how Cudi “couldn’t remember the joint.”
Now, I consider myself a casual Tribe fan. I know the essentials, own a couple CD’s, but would never go toe-to-toe with someone on song titles, discography timeline, etc. I’m also a huge Cudi fan…. So I say this “with all due respect” (the time-honored, passive-agressive phrase), but how did Cudi know the song, but not the title? The chorus is “buggin out, buggin out, buggin out, you’re buggin out”?!? That seems almost impossible. Watch closely, and you’ll see Cons raise his eyes up in a bit of a blank stare.
…. Or maybe I’m just muckraking for no reason. No need for another Fiascogate with a talented artist. This is a great re-make, and I should be celebrating the positivity of Consequence and Cudi jumping on a Tribe tribute together, after their short-lived Youtube misunderstanding (thankfully, Cons didn’t go visit Cudder’s mother, like other rappers)
“A few new stations, put me in rotation
they’ve embraced the martian… congratulations.”
